OUR STORY

The voyage of Sailbags Maui began on Maui's Famous north shore.  It was there in 2009 where the realization that kitesurfing/kiteboarding sails ultimately end up in our landfill, thus the venture of Sailbags Maui set sail.  

 

Our mission is to save as many kitesurfing sails as possible from ending up in landfills.  

 

We execute our mission by transforming or "up-cycling" kite sails into delightful tote bags and accessories.  The nylon properties of kites make them tough and durable, lightweight and water-resistant.  However, they can take generations to decompose.  The epic journey of each kite we save gets a new breath of life and can continue to live on and sail on.  Each bag becomes a one-of-a kind conversation piece that inspires surf, recycling and aloha!  Our upcycled Sailbags are all cut, hand-washed, sewn and sourced in Maui. From the ocean to your shoulder, we hope you enjoy Sailbags Maui products for many more adventures to come. . . Sail on!
